February 14–Relationship Advice–Dear God–Part 2

Today is Valentine’s Day. Over the years experts like Dear Abby, Dr. Ruth, Oprah and Kay Jewelers have shared all kinds of advice on how to make this day special for that special someone.

Their advice for how we should celebrate Valentine’s Day encourages fun, romance and excitement for the special couple…not to mention giving of delicious, dark (okay, that’s my own personal preference) chocolate and beautiful bouquets of flowers. Following their advice can be really good for the couple.

And yet, without any really deep, authentic, lasting expression of love, even the fun, romance and excitement of the day will eventually fade…the chocolate will be devoured rapidly eaten…the flowers will wither. 

God’s relationship advice—whether on special days…or on mundane daily days…or right in the midst of difficult days—is always the same when it comes to how we should love.

Love must be sincere.

Romans 12:9

Okay, so there’s the very succinct, to the point and, quite honestly, very challenging advice from our Dear God.

Now, here are my (in)famous two questions:

  1. Do you believe it?…do you believe that this is God’s will for you in your relationships? And if you do…
  2. What are you going to do about it? 

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
